Vision Board phase 2

I posted this work as an abstract a couple of days ago.  It was an underpainting for a collage related a Feng Shui exercise.  I really liked it, but decided to do what I had set out to do.  So, I went ahead and glued my images on the board.   Thank you again, Joyce, for the inspiration. Artistically, I liked the abstract underpainting, but the collage has a lot more meaning.  Vision boards are not usually shared publicly, so I won't go into the details of what it means...or what it means to me.  Suffice it to say there are a lot of good things in my future, including "Arteriors," reading and travel.  I love the quote that ended up pretty much in the center of the composition. It is  "One should always be a little bit improbable" -Oscar Wilde.  I also love the cast on the arm that has an impressionist painting on it.  I have been having trouble with my right arm and have learned that it is a torn rotator cuff.  I am improving now that I have a diagnosis and physical therapy.  I was thinking of making some beauty out of my pain.  I think this board will evolve.  My plan is to add other things that are meaningful as I come acroos them.  It is about 36" x 36" in size, so has room for a lot of addition ideas.  I'm glad I used the tissue background because some of the areas need more input.  The lower right had has the door to the world.  That is how I am feeling right now.
